kenneth curtis. joining me is washington post reporter ed o'keefe. what can you tell me about the arrest investigation in d.c.? >> we know an arrest was made today. and the fact that this happened so quickly, we seem to get a sense yesterday they were moving in on someone because senators who were briefed on this yesterday afternoon were told that the suspect they believed had done this was someone who had written to government officials in the past. having tracked suspicious mail cases for a few years, i can tell you there are several different people out there that the u.s. postal investigation, the fbi and the police track on a basis. they can track the handwriting, the style of writing and the materials sent. in this case they were able to move quickly and find this guy, paul kenneth curtis, who lived in this mississippi area. >> we talked to the people down there and they tell us he's an elvis impersonator. his facebook page says he's a self-proclaimed mensa expert. he has a beef with washington. >> and that's typical with the people who send in this mail on a regular basis. there w
.c. according to this arrest tonight may translate to kenneth curtis. of course, he has not been convicted of anything so far. but we are told last night by sources very carefully that arrest warrants may be issued today. they had a good idea that this guy came from the state of mississippi. was a frequent letter writer to federal officials here in washington so the tone of the letters did not surprise them. the contents of the letters testing positive, at least initially for ricin was a surprise. but the important news, the good news for people here on capitol hill who were terrorized by letters 12 years ago was the fact that essentially that these were captured, alarms went off at offsite facilities so these got nowhere close to the capital complex. nowhere close to the white house. nowhere close to the president of the united states or this republican senator roger wicker of mississippi, bill? >> bill: mike, thank you. i want to bring in greta van susteren. greta is a lawyer. investigated plenty of crimes. she is in the studio getting ready for "on the record" at 10:00 eastern time. wha

the other reason that the f.b.i. sees no connection to boston is a matter of timing. kenneth curtis of tupelo, mississippi, has been taken into custody and charged with sending the letters. the f.b.i. believes curtis has sent over letters with similar content to other members of congress in the past and that pattern helped lead to this arrest. the presence of small amounts of ricin in these letters has now been confirmed. wyatt andrews, cbs news, washington. >> pelley: britain said goodbye today to the iron lady, margaret thatcher. her funeral at st. paul's cathedral was attended by queen elizabeth and dignitaries from 170 countries, including three former u.s. secretaries of state. thatcher was great britain's first female prime minister. she died of a stroke last week at 87. there has been an arrest now in the murders of two texas prosecutors. we'll have that next. if you have high cholesterol, here's some information that may be worth looking into. in a clinical trial versus lipitor, crestor got more high-risk patients' bad cholesterol to a goal of under 100. getting to goal is i
